A philosophy of science for personality theory by Joseph F Rychlak( Book )

31 editions published between 1968 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The psychologist's conception of his science involves more than a set of abstract principles, more than an operating manual for the design of research and the construction of theory. Each philosophy of science in psychology is intimately bound up with an image of man, a disciplinary identity, and a system of basic assumptions and values regarding the aims, problem areas, and investigative methods with which psychology should properly concern itself. Until recently, the scientific orientation in American psychology has been predominantly "demonstrative" rather than "dialectical." The prevailing approach has been tough-minded, extraspective, technically rigorous, operationalistic. The aim of this text then is to offer a new, less constraining philosophy of science--an approach suited to the development of personality and clinical and social psychology. It also offers a philosophy of science that will serve to free as well as to discipline the scientific imagination, as it advances the notion that our scientific efforts should draw creatively on both the "demonstrative" and the "dialectical" traditions without being constrained by either.

The human image and postmodern America by Joseph F Rychlak( Book )

18 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a thought-provoking critique of the basic premises underlying the explanations of human behavior frequently offered by psychologists. Despite its avowed shift away from behavioristic ways of thinking, psychology today, according to Rychlak, is essentially mechanistic. But while biological and automatic processes clearly have vital uses, they are unable to fully account for such phenomena as free will and agency--the very qualities that make us human. Rychlak has written a short, accessible book, analyzing an impressive range of social and cultural issues such as personal responsibility, individualism and collectivism, autonomy, anti-authoritarianism, postmodernism, racism, and political correctness. In each case he demonstrates the teleological or nonmechanical nature of our behavior in real-life situations. While this is not a "how-to" book in the usual sense of the word, its author does suggest that only when we come to understand what it really means to be human can we resolve the most pressing issues of our times.

In defense of human consciousness by Joseph F Rychlak( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph F. Rychlak defies trends in psychology, sociology, and science that reduce the role of human intention in thought and behavior. This volume presents a model of the mind that reinforces the important role of free will in consciousness. Rychlak affirms that humans are purposive and have intentions that can best be explained by taking an internal perspective on consciousness. He confronts many essential questions about the nature of consciousness: Does free will exist? Does thinking occur through a biological process? In keeping with the traditions of philosophy, Rychlak measures his own logical learning theory of consciousness against the theories of other philosophers, psychologists, and scientists. By contrasting and comparing his own theories with everything from psychoanalysis to evolution to the currently reigning interpretations of consciousness and the new science of artificial intelligence, Rychlak consistently proves the applicablitity of his approach

Researching Dialectical Reasoning: Possibilities and Impossibilities by Joseph F Rychlak( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although traditional learning theories are based on a demonstrative view of cognition, human beings tend to reason both demonstratively and dialectically. To examine the dialectical theory five studies were conducted. In the first study subjects rated words that could be used as personality descriptors for likability and subsequently learned them by paired association. Results showed that subjects learned their liked descriptors-words more readily than their disliked words. Subjects in the the antonym condition learned the opposites of their dislike words more readily than the opposites of their like words. In the second and third studies high school and college students rated nonsense syllables to one prime syllable by way of triassociation. Results showed that oppositionality had great heuristic power and that this facilitative role was in the dialectically framed conceptual abilities of the subjects. In the fourth study subjects learned words associated with personality characteristics, manipulated for oppositional/nonoppositional organizers. Results showed that words associated with oppositional organizers were easier to memorize. In the fifth study subjects rated personality traits for affective preference and gave associaitons to the meanings of each word. Results showed that the impression formed by subjects based on the antonym were significantly different from the prime. These findings suggest that human meanings are not congeries of singular, unidirectional associations. (Bl)
